Katie Wolski - Vocals, auxiliary percussion

Musicians perspective:
Very nice and warm gig. I tweaked a lot of the arrangements and I love how they turned out. Also experimented with using an iPod Touch to "drive" the band in terms of using it to play the backing tracks (drums and bass primarily). Worked great! Ain't technology grand? Using Apple Lossless codec on the tracks.

This particular recording is the matrix recording (see below for explanation).

A "matrix" recording is where you take a soundboard recording and blend in a stereo recording "from the room" (in this case, a Zoom Q3HD sitting at the back of the room pointed at our PA speakers).
Matrix recordings usually pick up more of the room noise and crowd noise, but it is the frequencies and overall sound of the room that the soundboard recording DOESN'T pick up...so blending these two sources gives you a more "live" and warm sound when compared to a straight soundboard recording.

Until next time,

Kevin B. Selby

Reviewer: Kevin B. Selby - - January 11, 2012
Subject: Glad you liked it!
The main reason it sounds like you're "there" is due to the "matrix mix" concept. You mix about 80% of the multi-track "soundboard" mix with 20% of the "house" mix (what the Zoom Q3HD "heard" at the back of the room with its high tech stereo condenser microphones in X/Y pattern). You get the best of both worlds.

Now sure, I could probably try to find better condenser mic's for the "house" portion of the mix, but for now, the Zoom R16 multi-track recording paired with the Zoom Q3HD "house" mix is certainly "good enough".

And I'm really glad we have a fan!!

Sincerely,

Kevin B. Selby
